Cold Spring inspires British writer
A British writer, IJ Benneyworth, has published a novel, Dark River, set in a fictional Hudson River town based in part on his visits to Cold Spring.
“I spent many hours walking around, taking photos, soaking up the atmosphere of the town and the walking trail near the Foundry, and of course enjoying a burger and truffle fries at the Depot,” he said. “The town and county of Independence might be fictional and inspired by many different places, but I hope I’ve captured some of the character of the Hudson area.”
The book focuses on a single mother who, as the town’s sheriff, uncovers the truth behind the apparent suicide of a lawyer. Dark River can be downloaded at Amazon.com for the Kindle.
